Qin Jue didn’t expect that his first time refining a medicinal pill would actually cause such a big commotion.
Initially, he thought that even if he failed, he could just use his spirit energy to condense a pill that would surpass a grade one.
In the end, not only did he succeed in refining it, he even refined a perfected grade four pill?
Ordinary grade four pill refiners could only refine high grade four pills. Above that were the Supreme Stage Spirit Pills.
As for perfected pills, it could only be chanced upon by luck.
Even a perfected grade one pill was countless times more expensive than ordinary grade one pills.
This was because a perfected medicinal pill represented that the medicinal strength had been purified by more than ninety percent. Furthermore, it had to be matched with various favorable conditions in order to have a chance of successfully refining it.
Pill refiners who were able to refine perfected pills were all renowned existences in the alchemy world.
Most importantly, perfected pills did not have pill toxins.
As everyone knew, all pills, regardless of their grade, would have a certain level of pill toxin. This pill toxin would accumulate as the number of pills one consumed increased, until finally erupting uncontrollably.
Therefore, cultivators who often consumed medicinal pills would think of ways to use various heavenly treasures to remove the pill toxin in their bodies.
On the other hand, people who consumed perfected pills didn’t have to worry about this problem at all. Therefore, every perfected pill was extremely precious and priceless.
Even though Wu Zhenjian was already a grade four pill refiner, he had yet to refine a perfected grade four pill.
Thinking of his senior brother who had yet to refine a normal pill apart from the Wuji Saint’s Essence Soul, Qin Jue couldn’t help but shake his head and sigh. Perhaps this was the difference in talent.
Seeing everyone staring at the medicinal pill in his hand, Qin Jue put it back into his storage ring and cheerfully said, “I won.”
The result was obvious at this point.
Zhang Yang’s furnace had already exploded. Even if Qin Jue refined trash, he would still win, let alone a perfected grade four pill.
“Master, Master, if he hadn’t absorbed the surrounding spirit qi and affected my state of mind, my furnace definitely wouldn’t have exploded. You have to uphold justice for me!”
Zhang Yang clearly did not realize the seriousness of the problem. He scrambled to Wu Zhenjian’s side, trying to get him to help.
Wu Zhenjian :”…”
You make it sound like you would have won if the furnace had not exploded.
“What? Are you going back on your word?”
Qin Jue narrowed his eyes.
Wu Zhenjian slapped Zhang Yang on the face and said coldly, “Trash, admit defeat and quickly kowtow to apologize!”
Wu Zhenjian had never thought that Qin Jue could actually refine a perfected grade four pill. Even if he wanted to act shamelessly, he couldn’t do so in front of so many people. He could only give up on Zhang Yang.
Zhang Yang was already injured. He immediately spat out blood and retreated, his face pale.
Seeing Wu Zhenjian’s expressionless face, Zhang Yang knew that he had no other choice but to kneel in front of Qin Jue. “Sorry, I was wrong!”
Qin Jue waved his hand impatiently.
Hearing this, Zhang Yang seemed to have lost his soul. He stood up groggily from the ground and acted as though he was a lifeless machine.
As Wu Zhenjian’s core disciple, Zhang Yang’s life had been smooth-sailing in recent years. Especially after he became a grade one pill refiner, people around him would always praise and flatter him. When had he ever been so miserable?
All the cultivators present shook their heads and sighed. If Zhang Yang could not recover from this failure, it would be very difficult for him to make another breakthrough in the future.
It could even cause inner demons inside of him, causing his cultivation to deteriorate.
Wu Zhenjian also lost face because of Zhang Yang. He glared at Ye Yao coldly. If it wasn’t for this woman, things wouldn’t have been so troublesome.
“Sect Master Wu, are you still going to make a move?”
Ye Yao laughed instead of being angry.
Qin Jue’s victory in the pill refinement competition had greatly exceeded her expectations. She was very happy now and didn’t care about Wu Zhenjian’s hostility at all.
Wu Zhenjian flicked his sleeves and could only forcefully endure his anger as he turned to leave.
Putting aside the fact that Ye Yao was of the same realm as him and was also a sound cultivator, Wu Zhenjian would definitely not act rashly now that he knew that Qin Jue was capable of refining a perfected grade four pill. In his eyes, Qin Jue might even be a Heaven Stage cultivator. Wu Zhenjian was not confident that he could fight two enemies at once.
Moreover, Qin Jue was now someone who was sought after. It was unknown how many people wanted to befriend him. If Wu Zhenjian rashly made a move, he would most likely be stopped by other cultivators.
“Master… Wait for me…”
Zhang Yang followed behind Wu Zhenjian with lifeless eyes, still in a daze.
Seeing this, Qin Jue returned the pill furnace to Ye Yao and prepared to go back to his room to sleep.
“Master, what pill did you refine just now?”
A spectating cultivator couldn’t help but step forward and ask, directly calling Qin Jue master.
“Drunk Heart Pill.”
Qin Jue answered casually.
“Drunk Heart Pill? Why haven’t I heard of it before?”
The cultivator was somewhat dumbfounded.
Nonsense. Of course you’ve never heard of it.
The Drunk Heart Pill was a pill refined by Qin Jue with a heart shaped chocolate as the prototype. Therefore, how could he have heard of it?
What was worth mentioning was that since it was refined with spirit fruits, the twelve Drunk Heart Pills were also divided into several different flavors, and Qin Jue could use them as snacks.
“Then… does the Drunk Heart Pill have any special effects?”
After a moment of hesitation, the cultivator asked.
“Mm… it should be able to be used to increase cultivation.”
Qin Jue said with uncertainty, because even he didn’t know what effect this thing had.
Hearing that it could increase cultivation, the cultivator’s eyes lit up. He hurriedly said, “Master, I’m willing to give you 10 high-grade spirit stones to buy a single Drunk Heart Pill!”
As soon as these words were spoken, it was like a fuse had been lit. Many cultivators cried out one after another, “I’m also willing to pay 10 high-grade spirit stones to buy a Drunk Heart Pill!”
“I’ll pay 20 high-grade spirit stones!”
“I’ll pay 30!”
In an instant, many cultivators started a price war. One after another, the courtyard seemed to become an auction hall.
“Sorry, I’m not selling.”
Everyone was stunned. They had actually forgotten the most important factor. Qin Jue had never promised to sell the Drunk Heart Pill.
“I’ll give 200 high-grade spirit stones to buy a Drunk Heart Pill. How about it?”
At this time, a black-robed Heaven Stage cultivator with a scar on his face stepped forward and said.
“It’s the Valley Master of the Dark Abyss Valley, Tang Tian!”
The other cultivators gasped and hurriedly pulled away from the fellow with the scar.
Dark Abyss Valley was a Martial Dao faction formed by assassins. No matter where one was, assassins were the most feared existence.
Therefore, almost no one dared to offend the Dark Abyss Valley. Otherwise, they wouldn’t even know when they would die.
“The one standing next to Tang Tian should be his third son. It’s said that Tang Tian’s third son is talented and intelligent. Moreover, he’s skilled in forging hidden weapons. He once relied on his Profound Stage cultivation to successfully assassinate an Earth Stage cultivator.”
“Yeah, yeah. Best to stay away from him.”
Tang Tian didn’t seem to hear the surrounding discussion. He looked straight at Qin Jue and waited for an answer.
Qin Jue’s answer was still the same.
